Arganese Connecticut Chairman is a decent Torpedo. I have smoked cigars that were twice more expensive, yet provided the same satisfaction (for example, Vegas Robaina Unicos).
I pretty much liked the way this Torpedo looked. There were no apparent issues with the wrapper.
Slightly tight draw, I noticed that this was common to all cigars in the Arganese Torpedo line. It burned slowly and evenly, without totally dying out yet requiring regular puffs.
This medium-bodied cigar started out hesitantly and it was pretty hard to decipher any particular flavors. After a few minutes, light creamy scents of coffee/vanilla began to appear in crescendo. The second third was mainly leathery and the finish provided me with pleasant cedar notes.
Not sure if I would actually buy this cigar. Since I'm not really fond of Torpedos, I would rather go for the Arganese petit corona, which was a better smoking experience.
Overall Rating :
I think this one was too light for me. However, I must say that the flavors were interesting and the Arganese Connecticut Chairman Torpedo might be a very good cigar to start a day with.
